Manchester vs Loughborough vs LancasterWatch
I know Manchester is probably the most 'prestigious' and is in the Russel group. I believe it's more internationally recognised.
However, Loughborough has very good student satisfaction and is highly ranked in most league tables (I know they're don't mean all that much).
Lancaster is also highly ranked and looks like it has a very nice campus!
I'm not sure if I like the surrounding area of Manchester, but I haven't spent enough time there to be sure. I'm also not sure if I'd prefer campus based unis or not haha.
So which one of these uni's would you chose and why?
Sorry for the long question and for not knowing anything haha, cheers.
Manchester is more reputable than Loughborough and Lancaster and more targeted by employers. For the things that matter, Manchester is better. You will do fine if you go to Loughborough and Lancaster as well, but don't be fooled by league tables alone. Just decide what is important to you. In the end of the day, the difference in employment prospects is not that significant between these 3 universities.
Look at course content, the city, the campus, living costs, etc. There are so many variables. If you are going by reputation alone, then Manchester is the obvious choice in my opinion.
Do you go to uni? If so, if you don't mind me asking, where?
